Keep Florence Beautiful hosted a cleanup day for the Great American Cleanup on Saturday, April 1. Volunteer teams cleaned their designated areas, then gathered by Naturally Outdoors Outfitters (W. Palmetto Street) between 11 AM and 1 PM. KFB Board members served a free lunch of hot dogs and hamburgers to hungry clean-up crews with appetites!
Teams had a beautiful, sunny, and warm day for removing trash from our roadways!
